MOT Your PPM Technology in this free Wellingtone questionnaire, which is set out like an online quiz and is free to use. It is easily accessible in English and Spanish and can provide an insight into what technology would work for your organisation.
It is important when looking for a Project Portfolio Management (PPM) tool to consider certain aspects before making any decisions. It is important to understand that most of the PPM tools out there will do everything you want them to do; however, we should remember that everything we want is often not what we need.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, PMOs need to take some time to understand how best to position themselves or the future challenges faced by organisations, so Wellingtone has developed this short questionnaire to help guide people towards the tool that may best suit them for their own reality.
